New look fresh content: Australian Catholics gets a makeover

Staff 3 March 2023

The latest edition of Australian Catholics magazine, out this month, has a new look and feel.

Jesuit Communications staff and a few guests gathered for a morning tea last week to launch the redesigned autumn edition.

‘This is the first major redesign we’ve had for the magazine in a number of years’, Michael McVeigh, former Australian Catholics editor and current Jesuit Communications head of publishing, said. ‘The new look is amazing, and really helps bring the magazine to life.’

Readers picking up the latest edition will find the magazine still features interesting and imaginative articles exploring Catholic faith and life, but with a new and fresh design.

Columns from our talented regular writers Ann Rennie and Michael McGirr have been slightly refocused. Ann Rennie’s column, ‘In the footsteps of Mary’, will still explore moments in daily life and their relation to the church but now with a more woman-focused take, while in ‘Things to Live For’, Michael McGirr explores stories that help uncover the deeper ideas and experiences that give our lives purpose and meaning. 

‘Our goal has always been to provide a platform for intelligent, engaging writing, and our redesign helps make the magazine even more enjoyable to pick up and read’, Australian Catholics editor Michele Frankeni said.

‘With a clean, modern layout and eye-catching graphics featuring interesting Catholic facts, readers will find it easier than ever to dive into our articles and learn new things.

‘I want to thank the designer Keely Goodall for her vision and creativity,’ Michele said.

Whether you’re an avid reader or just looking for something new, you won’t want to miss the latest edition.

Autumn 2023 explores the world of Jesus, and includes a number of informative articles from Biblical scholars, as well as creative articles by members of our young writers community. Readers will also be able to go on an imaginative tour of the first century settings of some of the most famous Biblical stories with our ‘Lonely Disciples Guide to the Holy Land’.
